‘His face will never be the same’: Fort Worth man remains in hospital after pit bull attack
A man who was attacked by two pit bulls near his home in Fort Worth remains in the hospital for nearly a week.
The attack was relentless: the dogs bit Marcus Kizaza’s arms, legs and face. Now his family is seeking legal help to determine who may be responsible for the man’s extensive injuries.
“We’ve established the owner,” said Chris Lyrett of Fort Worth Animal Control. “The owner has been fined. Both dogs are handed over to the city. Both dogs were euthanized and sent for rabies testing.”
However, according to Animal Control, this may take some time.
“This is an ongoing affair,” Lirett said. “In any current business. if any information is required, a public information request must be made.”
Kizaza is now represented by attorney Cole McNeil with Anderson personal injury lawyers.
“The biggest hurdle is just trying to figure out who these dogs belong to, where they came from and why they didn’t exist,” McNeil said. “If you need to sue, we will definitely do it. We want to get all the information, all the facts first. This is a civil matter. We will take care of it properly.”
McNeil said he has already submitted the proper documentation to help his client get justice.
“You know, in many cases they take the initiative and do the right thing,” McNeil said. “We hope they do.”
Meanwhile, the family’s lawyer asked witnesses and neighbors to come forward and provide support and information.
